This Ford Mustang Was Fitted With Real Mustang Horse Hair

Muscle Car

This owner has somewhat questionable taste.

We’ve seen tuning companies take things too far before with car modifications that aren’t exactly tasteful, but this takes things to a new level. There’s no other way to put this: car styling house Vilner Beijing has made a Mustang with hair from an actual Mustang horse in the interior. Because that’s exactly what Mustang owners want in their car. Well, apparently one Chinese customer requested exactly that. All we can say is that they have somewhat questionable taste.

Based on a 2015 5.0-liter V8 Mustang GT which produces 416-horsepower, the client requested the leather in the seats to be authentically sourced from a real Mustang horse. “He wanted not only a genuine leather but a leather from a real mustang horse. Complete with the hair...” the press release proudly states. Really? “This is a real Mustang, I want the leather to be from a mustang as well,” the customer defiantly told the styling house. While much of the interior is adorned with hand-crafted horse leather, Vilner says that there are patches of horse hair on the sides of the seats. Vilner even admits that using real horse hair is bound to cause controversy.

Elsewhere, the door panels, dashboard, and wheel is coated in a combination of leather and Alcantara, and the red fabric roof features a custom hand-painted, Chinese-style design depicting two cobras as a nod to Shelby Mustangs. For now, Vilner’s creation is a one-off, but who knows what other designs it could inspire in the future. Honestly, we’re not quite sure what to make of this. Perhaps the customer was inspired by The Grand Tour’s controversial cars made of animal skin?
